ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD

                        
            Everything in life that appears to be attractive does not necessarily have great value . so judging by appearances can be misleading . This same fact can be said in another way : A book cannot be judged by its cover . A book with a very attractive cover may not have readable material inside . On the other hand , a book with a very dull cover may be very interesting . This is true of almost everything in life .  A show that is well advertised may be dull and boring . And a movie that has received very little publicity may be quite entertaining 


.

            So we must not jump to conclusions about the merits or demerits or anything purely on the basis of the way it is packaged . this is the age of advertisement .Makers of products try to show their products in the best light so that people will buy them . But this does not necessarily mean that the product is well worth the money .even when we judge people we should not do so by their looks . We must not get swayed by their flashy styles or dashing ways .Gandhiji wore just a dhoti , but he is still held in great reverence throughout the world . 


Abraham Lincoln was not endowed with good looks . But he is considered by far the greatest American president . Mother  Teresa had a very simple appearance . But people all over the world remember and revere her . So it is only fair to say that all that glitters is not gold .
